But you could at least judge the 38A half?
Maybe. And 1.3 too.

This only makes sense as otherwise it would be unfair

I know but you need at least some experience to understand how levels work. I have seen plenty of people judge levels based on their aesthetics rather than their gameplay and that frustrates me.
You definitely need knowledge on good game design to be an effective judge, but your ability to execute it has little, if any, correlation to you ability to judge a level. People who judge based off of aesthetics probably lack knowledge of good game design, which would in turn make them unable to judge (and also design levels).
I rather choose people who have experience being a judge or with experience in level design than someone who doesn't have both.
Then you are going to run into a fairly small group of people. You don't need to know how to create something excellent to judge it. If that was the case, almost every game/film critics opinion would be invalid because they don't know how to create a game or create a movie.
I dunno, something inspirational is supposed to go here so here I go:

Realize the difference between criticism and hate.
Criticism is direct feedback about the level that helps and tells you what you could do better and/or what you could expand upon.
Hate is direct insults towards you/your level that tell you nothing other than how bad you are.

AKA: Don't cry at every responce you get, just ignore hate and respond to criticism.

Is someone still interested at being a Judge? Also if someone wants to help out with the hubs and coding for the 2.0/38A version of the contest, then you can ask here but there is one requirement, you need to have discord so we can communicate at real time.

Does anyone else have the PostImages problem? Frankly, it annoys me that sometimes I can't view pictures.

Now we need only 2 more Judges.
UPDATE:
Please tell me in which version must your level be played in after submitting it to me.

Also you can support this contest by placing this in your signature so it can gain more popularity.

If you are able to use 2.0 and 38A then you can be a judge.

I'm able to use SMBX2, just I feel a bit uncomfortable with it because of the issues but if I will use it for the contest only, I guess there's no problem. In 38A, I don't have any other issue. Thanks!

Ok, so last thing, can you find a way to get discord before 1-st April as its kinda needed for the judges because there are all of the submissions and reviews of the levels.

I have an account on Discord, but when I want to join to a channel, the messages don't appear (also idk how to join to the other channels like #smbx). And I activated my account too. Any thoughts?

By channel, do you mean server? Why not google it or see videos on youtube. If this doesn't help, then we can move to PMs to see where exactly is the problem and not drag out the topic.
